Drastic Plastic organiser Penny Hepburn writes

A couple of months ago, TBI was contacted by the Inverness Science Festival organisers, who were organising an online Science Festival Family event to run on 2 days - Saturday 1st May and Saturday 8th May.  They asked if we wanted to contribute an online activity to which we said yes (without having a clue quite how) and on further thought realised that the best option would be to do something around the activities we did at the last real Science Festival Family day 2 years ago.  Subsequently, we have submitted two activities in virtual form: a ‘Spot the Difference’ Beach Clean and a ‘Match the alternative non plastic item to the plastic item’.

This is a Family event with lots of varied and interesting activities to take part in. Great for children of all ages and fun for adults too! So please promote the event if you can.

The link to the event is
